Dead Again 

Wednesday, Nov 5 2008
Trina Lopez's A Second Final Rest: The History of San Francisco's Lost Cemeteries makes us think of Doug Dorst's novel Alive in Necropolis and Richard Wong and H.P. Mendoza's film Colma: The Musical, of course. What took people so long to get obsessed with the City of the Dead? Here's Wikipedia: "Essentially everyone who died in San Francisco in the twentieth Century was buried in Colma, if they were buried anywhere." Lopez' film is critical of certain aspects of Colma's city planning, and has interesting questions about the University of San Francisco campus itself, as well.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
